Summary
"Against the Tide offers a passionate yet evenhanded account of the crisis facing America's beaches - and what we must do to protect them." "With harrowing accounts of natural disasters, lucid explanations of the physics of the beach and coastal ecology, reports of unwise construction, and a clear-eyed elucidation of public policy and conservation issues, this book illustrates in rich detail the conflicting interests, short-term responses, and long-term imperatives that will shape the future of the American coast."--Jacket
